Basements are susceptible to water damage throughout the year, with the winter months bringing their unique set of challenges. To efficiently remove water, the sump pump in your home requires clear and unobstructed lines. Frozen lines can cause major issues and lead to a flooded basement.
There is a solution. With Foundation Recovery Systems’ AquaStop™ FreezeGuard™, you can keep your basement dry year-round. This attachment is part of our comprehensive basement waterproofing solution, aiming to keep your space dry during the icy winter months.
Learn how AquaStop™ FreezeGuard™ works, its multiple benefits, and why it’s crucial to protect your basement against the harsh winter conditions.
What is the AquaStop™ FreezeGuard™?
AquaStop™ FreezeGuard™, provided by Foundation Recovery Systems, connects to the external discharge line of your sump pump system just outside your home.
It acts as an emergency escape route for water, preventing backflow problems, resulting in sump pump failure and a flooded basement. If your discharge line freezes, water is diverted to the FreezeGuard™ where it is released without causing damage.
As part of our whole-home waterproofing system, this advanced technology, when combined with our other waterproofing solutions, offers robust protection against water damage.
Signs You Need the FreezeGuard™ Attachment
The FreezeGuard™ attachment becomes a necessity when your basement exhibits symptoms like:
- Basement water during the winter months
- Recurrent ice build-up around the foundation or discharge areas
- Unusual noise from the sump pump
- Previous frozen discharge lines
- Wet basement walls
- Stale, damp odors in the basement
- Mold in the basement
- Efflorescence on basement surfaces
Ignoring these issues can have serious repercussions, affecting your home’s structural stability and your family’s health. If you see these warning signs, contact Foundation Recovery Systems for a free inspection and repair quote.
Is an Anti-Freeze Exterior Sump Pump Discharge Line Attachment Necessary?
In areas where freezing of discharge lines is common, an anti-freeze discharge line attachment like AquaStop™ FreezeGuard™ is vital.
Without it, a basement flood during winter is possible, causing mold growth, structural damage, and loss of valuables.
Secure your home with the FreezeGuard™ attachment now for peace of mind.
